My mother taught me hosting a party begins with the invitation. Whether it’s a birthday party, a girls weekend, or even a simple cocktail hour, welcoming your guests with an official digital or printed invite is the icing on the cake. I like to think of it as their first impressions to the event you’re hosting, making it official and boujee with design. Creating and sending out invitations has become second nature to me. I get a real kick from finding the perfect design to pair with my party. How often have you noticed beautiful invitations displayed on your friend’s fridge or memo board? They are mini pieces of art stirring up excitement to those on the receiving end.
It’s a tricky task to find a place to order customized stationery, but I have just the spot for you.
Enter scene: Basic Invite
For any printed invitations and even holiday cards, I love to use Basic Invite. Each piece of stationery is completely customizable down to the envelope color. Better yet, if you are like me and love to dabble with graphic design, you can upload your own artwork to their site. Woo-hoo!
Since Bryce’s birthday was on August 20th (he’s 25 and old now haha!), we decided to create invites for a little happy hour at our apartment. We went with a pre-designed birthday invitation and added in our bits of information to customize it. I absolutely loved how they turned out! The quality of the card is unmatched. The colors we used turned out so rich and moody for our Speakeasy theme, which is sometimes pretty hard to establish with greens. I used to spend a lot of time at the FedEx Office Store printing color samples for my previous job. I’m not a color expert but these invitations were luscious.
